A Quiet Place

John Krasinski (The Office) directs, co-writes and stars alongside Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) in this horror in which a family must stay silent to hide from deadly creatures that hunt by sound.

Set in the very near future, a rural American family has adapted to a world now inhabited by a plague of vicious killing machines that have brought down modern civilisation. Living their lives in near silence to escape detection by the monsters' super-hearing, parents and children struggle with domestic life as well as the need to remain human in the face of unstoppable creatures trying to snuff out their existence.

Sometimes, getting on the clever/whatever wavelength of a horror film and just rolling with can be a part of the fun. "A Quiet Place" is that kind of movie.

Though it's Krasinski's third time in the director's chair, it's his first home run thanks, in no small part, to the film's emphasis on family and Krasinski's choice of leading lady-his wife and mother of his two children, Emily Blunt.

Rallies a cry for intimate originality in film which has long been muted by bloated blockbusters and tiresome, unfulfilling sequels.

Even moviegoers who don't accept the metaphor are going to have the pants scared off them.

A bravura monster movie which just doesn't let up, ratcheting tension with nary a word uttered on screen.

I enjoyed 'a quiet place'. I thought it was scary, terrifying, disgusting and awesome.

It will leave you inaudibly gasping and crying at the edge of your seat.

Overall I enjoyed A Quiet Place. I thought the concept was unique for a feature-length movie, and it was well-acted and executed. The lack of sounds was used to great effect. However, the characters were quite one-dimensional and the attempts at more in-depth relationships felt forced and superficial. I also didn't find it scary - some tense moments to be...

"Ugh why did I get popcorn when I really should have got some chips?!" these were the first words out of the mouth-breather to his bro squad who had all just sat down behind me during the previews. After another minute of their meathead banter I decided it would be less ugly if I just got up and found another seat down the back (I usually end up switching...

A beautifully directed and filmed, well-written film uplifted by gripping performances from its cast. If it had focused on the emotional aspect of its plot slightly more it'd be perfect. But it's a thought-provoking film none the less.

I mostly enjoyed this movie. It suffers from the same problem as a lot of modern cgi titles, mainly - 'overexposure/oversharing'. You get to see the monsters early on, and it kills the mood. Ideally, it is great when movies like this keep the mystery of what the creatures look like until the very end. Another issue is cgi in itself. The lack of practical...

BEWARE SPOILERS AHEAD! THIS REVIEW IS BY SPOILER MCSPOILFACE. I really wanted to love this movie. Like, REALLY wanted to love it. I’d amped myself up for it & had had my belief it was going to be great confirmed by people who had seen it already. Sigh. The movie’s not bad, it’s a solid scarer. But it’s not great & sadly had several gaping holes that left...

I don't usually watch horror movies because most of today's horror movies are just a gore fest designed to make you feel sick. This is not one of those movies. This is a very intelligent movie that keeps your attention through an interesting set up and well built atmosphere. So even if you are not a fan of scary movies this should stay on your radar. As...
